Babies grow in the blink of a eye! It seems like yesterday that I was shopping for pregnancy clothes and now I’m putting away the bouncy seat and selling the 0-3 month clothes. Just yesterday, I needed to decide whether to buy size 2 or 3 diapers. Where does the time go? I don’t want to forget products that are absolute necessity so I try to stay on top of things by planning ahead. Since travel is as important as food and water in our lives, and Athena spends hours in the van happily playing with her toys and looking in the mirror, we figured that it’s never too early to think about a larger car seat. Britax is always busy working on new products with innovative safety, comfort, and ease-of-use features to meet the needs of both parents and children, making them the perfect choice for a car seat for Athena. We’re cheap when it comes to clothing and novelties, but when it comes to safety, we want the best. After countless hours of research, we decided that it doesn’t get any better than the Frontier 85! At the forefront in harness design, impact protection, and comfort, the Frontier 85 will be enjoyed by Athena for hours of travel and adventure. Continue reading
I know that some baby products are multi-purpose and Peg Perego is the master of creating innovative designs that function in various roles, but the Switch Four Modular System is even exceptional for Peg Perego. It comes with all the necessities: an infant car seat for road travel, a comfortable bassinet and bassinet stand for nursery and infant-use, a functional diaper bag, and the much-loved Switch Four stroller that holds both the car seat and bassinet. Instead of being called “switch four”, it should be called “switch ten” or more. Continue reading

I’ve talked about babywearing before and I’m sure I’ll talk about it in the future, but it’s something that I plan to do quite often with Little Miss Carter. I truly believe that it strengthens the bond between parent and child. Ultimately, I want to be close to my little girl. Who wouldn’t? She’ll be happy; I’ll be happy; the whole family will be happy. I’ve researched and reviewed countless carriers and the ERGObaby Performance Carrier is the most highly regarded and recommended by active parents, many of whom give it perfect ratings. With exceptional quality like the foam-padded straps at the shoulder and waist, adjustable fitting for parents of all sizes, a design that distributes most of the weight to the wearer’s hips, reducing the back and shoulder strain common among baby carriers, and versatility (babies can be carried up front, on one hip, or piggyback style), the Ergo Baby Carrier’s features stand out among the vast array of choices. The ERGObaby Carrier makes babywearing safe and a snap, and you don’t need to have a degree in engineering to figure our how to use it. The ERGO is designed so that you can wear your baby for hours on end with comfort all while allowing you to remain active and productive! Continue reading
Up until now, I refused to buy maternity clothes that I would wear for two months and never get use of again! That all ended when I found Mountain Mama. I no longer have to wear over-sized sweaters and my husband’s jackets; Mountain Mama designs garments that are guaranteed to fit before, during, and after pregnancy. All Mountain Mama apparel is built to perform through every stage of pregnancy and beyond. Their high-performance outdoor clothing adapts to women’s changing bodies, from the first trimester, the growing baby-bump, and back again. Innovative designs and advanced technical fabrics mean the garments will be keeping you comfortable and looking great, no matter what the conditions. Continue reading
Although I couldn’t possibly afford all organic clothing for my precious cargo due in March, I’d like to have some essential pieces that will be comfortable, cozy, and durable. When I found Puppy & Bean, I adored their cute saying and 100% organic materials. They sell adorable kids clothing with unique saying that reflect the true lives of children and a hint of humor for parents. Continue reading
At six months pregnant, I’d become incredibly agitated at night. No matter how tired I was, I just couldn’t get comfortable; when I would wake up in the morning, I would have such severe back pain that I couldn’t stand up. I’d wince and almost cry just walking to the bathroom. I couldn’t imagine surviving another three months with that type of suffering. Then, something completely changed my sleeping world – the Boppy Total Body Pillow. Boppy has become a household name with their signature feeding pillows that offer moms a comfortable way to nurse their baby. They’ve utilized that knowledge and experience to design the Boppy Total Body Pillow, which provides expectant moms comfort and support at night so they can get a good night’s rest. This pillow is the perfect size and shape; unlike a conventional pillow, the Total Body Pillow allows full support for my entire body. From my head, my developing belly, and my legs, this pillow provides the utmost comfort and relief. Continue reading
The thought of my newborn baby girl ever being hurt is hard to even type little lone imagine actually happening. I’m trying to prepare myself for any inevitable accidents that are to come; I’ve recently taken CPR/First Aid and my certification will remain valid as a
top priority. After purchasing several of the major items to prepare for the arrival of my child, I’m starting to think about keeping her healthy, happy, and active. ME4KIDZ offers MEDIBAG, the original kid-friendly first aid kit and I’m happy to find a place for it in my home.
Choosing the best baby carrier has been extremely confusing and I may not know what works best until my precious baby girl arrives. After substantial research and consideration, I’ve chosen the Boba Wrap for when my little bundle of joy arrives because of its high quality, comfort, durability, and ergonomic design. The Boba Wrap is perfect for my active lifestyle and gives me the time and freedom to create a real and caring bond with my child, while living life to the fullest.
